Big News (Literally) and a Short Note

Things quieted down on the Privly front two days ago when our Spring term at OSU started up, but as I sat in class today, this story landed in my inbox. I'm not so sure about this "class" thing anymore.

I want to take this opportunity to talk about the organizational plan for Privly. For the last three weeks I have been trying to get in touch with the EFF to discuss how we can incorporate Privly as a non-profit. We need organizational support in addition to coders and designers. If you know someone at the EFF, or another potential sponsor organization, please reach out to us. We are still debating what the proper model for priv.ly (the web site, but not the source code) is since it will provide a paid, hosted service. That is where the Forever Accounts and invitations will sit.

We'll get more information out tonight. Share this story with your friends!

PS: the inbox is filling up a little bit, but we are working down the list. Thanks for the pledges!
